Throughout the changes of life, we can all deal with sleep struggles now and again.
Thomas, my 19 year old son, has had his share of sleep struggles for the past few years. He is a deep thinker, and we feel that contributes greatly to his struggles at sleeping. It’s hard for him to “turn his brain off” in order to sleep.
However, we have found some ways to battle this struggle.
He first tried melatonin. It worked for a few nights, but he found that he was extra groggy the next day, and he had to increase the dosage each evening in order to get the same effect.
Once he tried RESCUE, we knew we had a way to battle the sleep struggle! In his words, it doesn’t necessarily make him sleepy, it makes him able to control his thoughts, and indeed “turn his brain off” to get to sleep. This, my friends, is huge for him.
We purchased RESCUE at Walgreen’s. It’s also available at CVS, Whole Foods, Sprouts and wherever you find natural products.

Here are our solutions for sleep struggles:
1. Turn off the computer at least an hour before bed.
2. Turn off the phone too.
3. Read a book for pleasure before turning the light off (not a suspenseful book)
4. Be sure the room is dark, with no little annoying red or green lights shining from devices
5. Be sure the room is at a comfortable temperature.
6. At least weekly, wash the bedding. A freshly-made bed just seems to induce sleep.
7. Take a warm shower about an hour before bed.
8. Write your thoughts about your day out.
9. Make a to-do list for the next day.
10. Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day, weekends included.
11. Check your mattress, turn it if needed, and cover it with a hypo-allergenic cover.
12. Invest in new pillows, also covered with a hypo-allergenic cover.
13. Be sure you are eating a well-balanced diet.
14. Stay away from energy drinks.
15. Use RESCUE when you’ve done all of the above, and are still having trouble getting to sleep.
